Butcher Style Aprons

Amarilis, Maria and Lety graduated from the Mayan Families Sewing Program in 2011 have been  making since then several items with their sewing machines, such as skirts, blouses, curtains, aprons, lavender hearts, among other products. Maria has also been participating with Aldea Maya (Sanitary Pads) an income generating activity; she makes reusable flannel sanitary pads for many of the young girls sponsored at Mayan Families.

They are also the ones who make the butcher style aprons and have made different styles, using different tipico fabric for the apron pockets, to make each of them unique. The new style that they have made is with adjustable straps, so you can adjust them to your size, as needed. We have some at our exposition room, where you can also find all sorts of items made by other artisans, graduated from the sewing project and mothers from your sponsored students.

These aprons are made with lots of care and love. We are now hoping to find buyers that are interested in this product, a product that is very practical and has a Guatemalan touch. Ideal for those who love to have a little bit of Guatemala at home.
